Michael Yon is an American writer and photographer.
Michael Yon (@Michael_Yon) is an author, columnist, and award-winning independent war correspondent who gives us a frontline view of the current civil unrest between Hong Kong protestors and the government of mainland China. What We Discuss with Michael Yon: What Michael means by his oft-truncated and misunderstood quote: "If a writer wants to make money, he should avoid truth and tell people what they want to hear. Yet to win the war, tell the truth." The difference between riots, protests, general civil unrest, and insurgency -- and what's really going on in Hong Kong right now in contrast with the official story. Why Michael considers himself a war correspondent and not a journalist -- and how the two differ. Why the long-simmering relationship between China and Hong Kong is only now coming to a boil, and what the rest of the world should take away from this. How the current movement in Hong Kong compares to Poland's Solidarity Movement of the '80s -- and why this especially worries the Chinese Communist Party. And much more...
